The Crown's Price
Two years ago, Tancred, King of Deusetats, made a deal with the Empress of Jovan. Now, the Empress has called in that deal. She wants to annexe the Kingdom of Merot, and she demands Tancred's assistance. But Tancred has enemies of his own, and he is no longer so certain of the choices he made two years earlier. If he honours his debt, he might lose his throne; if he reneges, Prince Rainhart's life will be forfeit. Tancred's reign began in blood, with the brutal beheading of a regicide. Now, Tancred and his allies must race against time to prevent it from ending the same way.
